Description Pawel Salek 2005-12-27 07:35:05 EST
Description of problem:
Recent changes to udev as distributed in the development version of FC started
to use some NSS calls which in case of networked machines with eg. nss_ldap
enabled will end up making network connections. Network devices are however not
available that early in the booting stage when udev is started which leads to an
apparent hang. nss_ldap times out after two minutes - fortunately! - but I am
not sure all other networked name services do. At best, it's a nuisance that
adds two minutes to the booting process.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add ldap keywords to /etc/nsswitch.conf, eg
passwd:     files ldap
2. reboot.
3. watch the computer apparently hang during udev startup.
